VR 2016: The Momentum of Growth Continues

Fri, Oct 21, 2016 | by Nardit Mosacho


2016 has long been billed as the year that VR hits the mainstream, by us as well as others, and so far it seems that matters are unfolding much as predicted. In fact, sales in some sectors are ahead of expectations, with the low-end smartphone market — the likes of Google cardboard and Samsung GearVR — predicted to sell 14.5 million units worth over $500m by the end of this year.

The Industry in 2020: New Forms of Audience Measurement | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Mon, Dec 14, 2015 | by Lenny Melamedas


Looking at the changes that the TV market is going through in the past five years one can pinpoint a few major trends: cord cutting and the shift to OTT solutions (in many variations of the two); the shift to 4K and Ultra HD quality content and TV sets, smart TVs and connectivity between devices, and the emerging dominance of personalized TV solutions.

Hot TV News: YouTube to Launch Streaming Service?; Online TV Revenues Set to Rocket; Big Changes in Autumn TV Viewing | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Mon, Dec 7, 2015 | by Merav Cunningham


The revenue that the global online and video industry will receive in 2020 is forecast to more than double to over $42bn by 2020, with SVOD in the driving seat. All of which makes the rumours about YouTube launching its own streaming service to compete with the likes of Netflix and Amazon seem more likely.

The Industry in 2020 - Viaccess-Orca

Tue, Dec 1, 2015 | by Stephen Newkirk


Mergers and acquisitions: There are four major cable operators in the United States that provide video, data and voice services:  Comcast, Time Warner Cable, COX Communications, and Charter Communications. Even though Comcast failed in their effort to get the support needed to purchase Time Warner Cable, I see other opportunities for key players emerging that will take-on other possible acquisition targets, driving consolidation. This is also true for our friends in the telecommunications market, as the pending AT&T acquisition of Direct TV indicates.

The Industry in 2020: Television RE[DEFINED] - Viaccess-Orca.com

Mon, Nov 23, 2015 | by Christian Kurz


TV used to be easy to define. When you’d think of a person watching TV, you could easily picture what that looked like: that person sitting before a television set, watching whatever was on at that time. Today, “TV” can mean many things. It still of course can refer to a person watching linear programming on their regular TV set—or binge-watching a series using a tablet, catching up on a missed episode of a favorite show on VOD, checking out a new show on a smartphone while riding home on the bus, or any number of other possibilities.

Mon, Nov 9, 2015 | by Attila Narin


I wouldn’t want to predict the future, but what we are seeing is, by offloading the undifferentiated heavy lifting of maintaining and procuring technology hardware, broadcasters are able to spend more time and money on generating new content and delivering that content to viewers in new ways.

The Industry in 2020: The Rise of Personalisation

Thu, Nov 5, 2015 | by Brett Sappington


In five years, the video service offering will be significantly more personalized than offerings available in the market today. Personalization in the user experience, advertising, and discovery are important first steps. However, in the future, the services and content offered to consumers will be smart, adapting to the interests and desires of consumers in a way that maximizes both use and monetization. Several trends that impact the TV industry today will drive this shift.
